Romain Dumas Drives a Rally-Spec Cayman GT4 Past the Limit of Adhesion

Getting to see a Le Mans ace and outright record holder at Pikes Peak behind the wheel of anything is special. It’s even better when those visuals are complemented by one of the most glorious exhaust notes in the world of motorsport.

Dumas uses all his talent to execute a tidy, efficient, drift to point him in the right direction a little sooner.

Romain Dumas has mastered most vehicles with four wheels, and as he’s a curious, old-school kind of driver who delves into new environments and excels immediately. Dumas has won twice in the R-GT class in a 997 GT3, but has since started developing the newer, better balanced contender for R-GT: The Cayman GT4 R-GT.

This snarling little beast is stripped and pared down to make it even more agile. Fixed windows with sliding ports trim weight but make the cabin a sauna, so a roof snorkel is implemented to keep the temperatures bearable. No official specs are available yet, but Porsche is reportedly developing this car for WRC competition, so expect some wild figures.

The Cayman GT4 R-GT will debut at Rallye Deutschland next weekend, and if it does well enough, Porsche may consider building a factory version based upon a future model. We wait with bated breath.

Watch This 911 GT3 Rally Car Fly Through the Woods

I feel for right-seaters in rally cars, I really do, especially on gravel. Even while reading the pace notes, they are completely at the mercy of the driver. On this test route, the person in the navigator’s position appears to be simply acting as ballast. Based on their clothing, they may well be an unsuspecting member of the team. I’m sure they were fitted with a helmet and gently coerced, or stuffed kicking and screaming, into the Porsche. The view over the dash in this GT3 is very standard for a modern 911 racecar, save the for tall handbrake and rally computer. The view out the windscreen is something else entirely.

Tuthill Porsche’s RGT rally kit is designed to make 997 and 991-generation cars competitive R-GT class rallying. The car in the video is slated to run in a Spanish rally series this season. While 911s are no strangers to rallying, it is still unusual to see a modern 911 on a gravel rally stage. Like its forebears (and many current « Safari » 911s) the car looks very much at home on the loose surface and over the bumps. The longer suspension travel and narrower tires seem to play in to the 911’s inherent strengths, especially when getting power down out of a corner.

Tuthill Porsche is making a serious name for themselves in rallying with their RGT programme. The first WRC-eligible RGT competed in the 2014 Rally Deutschland. At the close of the event, Richard Tuthill’s GT3 became the first Porsche to finish a WRC event in 28 years.

The R-GT class is currently very small. Regular entrants are limited to just 911 GT3s, the Lotus Exige S R-GT and Fiat 124 Spider G-GT. Additional passports are issued to individual cars at the FIA’s discretion. The added diversity is more than welcome amidst the sea of Subarus, Volkswagens and Mitsubishis seen at most WRC events.
